One of the biggest criticisms of the Transformers film franchise is that it looked nothing like the Transformers fans knew and loved. However, Bumblebee, the first Transformers film spinoff, represents something new and exciting. The teaser trailer gave us a brief look at the fan favorite Autobot’s first mission on Earth, as a VW Bug.
Now Paramount has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it’s filled with even more 80’s references and old school Transformers than you can roll out at. Check it out here below.
The upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee promises to be an exciting adventure in the same vein as some of the great Amblin films of the 1980s. Starring Hailee Steinfeld, the film sees one of the bravest Autobots trying to outrun two Decepticon seekers, named Shatter and Dropkick.
Now, just ahead of its big San Diego Comic-Con debut, Paramount has dropped a new image from the film, one that introduces the two Decepticons. Check it out below.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Bumblebee, a spinoff of the Transformers franchise.
The spinoff is an origin story for the Bumblebee character, set a couple of decades before the events of the first Transformers movie. It stars Hailee Steinfeld as a girl who discovers that the yellow Volkswagen Beetle she found at a junkyard in California is so much more than she first thought it was.

Never underestimate how convoluted the entire Transformers Cinematic Universe is. With each new installment, the franchise finds a way to disregard all of its rules and canon. Nothing makes sense. The only consistent thing about it was the Bayhem — explosions, sexual exploitation, racism, and the usual nonsensical material that comes with a Michael Bay film. But now that the director is out, we can hopefully look forward to something new for Transformers.
Especially when Paramount brought in a group of writers to pen up to 12 possible Transformers films. It’s still unclear if that is the number the studio is targeting. But if it is, then a possible reboot could just be the thing to help the franchise achieve Marvel Studios-like success. And that reboot may be in the works. More on the story below.
As far as the future for the Transformers franchise goes, well Paramount has that planned out. While Michael Bay will no longer be directing future entries after Transformers: The Last Knight, he has confirmed that there’s at least 14 more films currently being developed. One of those films is a Bumblebee spinoff, which has which has signedKubo and the Two String helmer Travis Knight to direct.
Now they may have found their lead star. Based on new reports, The Edge of Seventeen star Hailee Steinfeld is in talks for a role in the film. More on the story below.
